The price of champignon has stabilized in most regions of Ukraine. On December 30-31, price increases are expected only in the Western region of Ukraine. In the South and East – without much change. In the central region, there is a lull in the wholesale sector.
In the Central region of Ukraine, as of today, no special (as in the previous 3 days) surges in the cost of champignon have been recorded. Supermarkets receive products at 23.0-26.0 UAH / kg, the champignon goes to wholesale at 20.0-22.0 hryvnias per kilogram, which is already 1.0-1.5 UAH less than yesterday’s figures. The price of trade with regions slightly exceeds this indicator. It is carried out at 21.0-23.0 UAH / kg. In the wholesale markets of Troyeshchina and Stolichnaya, the price of mushroom also slightly decreased and is at the level of 22.0-23.0 UAH / kg. However, a large demand for products is no longer observed. According to industry representatives, most likely in the near future this may lead to some decrease in the purchase price of champignon.
Later, raising the price of champignon in the Western region led to the fact that the change in the price of mushrooms will continue until the New Year. Today, the cost of mushroom on Shuvar has risen by another 0.5-1.0 hryvnia compared with the maximum sales for yesterday and now ranges from 21.5-22.0 hryvnias per kilogram. Nevertheless, remembering yesterday’s situation with rising prices in the afternoon, manufacturers are in no hurry to sell their products even at 20.0-21.0 UAH / kg, expecting a further increase in purchase prices. The cost of mushrooms for supermarkets in the region has also increased. Today, mushroom producers supply their products at prices ranging from 19.5 to 22 hryvnia per kilogram.
In the East, the price level has not changed. And, according to forecasts of market representatives, it will remain at the same level until next year. The cost of champignon for supermarkets is 28.0-30.0 UAH / kg, in wholesale mushroom leaves at 28.0-33.0 hryvnia per kilogram.
In the south of Ukraine, the price of champignon also remains unchanged. Supermarkets continue to receive mushrooms at 28 UAH / kg. The price of champignon for wholesalers was tightened by 1.0 hryvnia, thereby approaching the mark of trading with networks. On average, for this sector, the fungus costs 25.0-27.0 UAH / kg.
